Funding boost for heritage and health projects

THE preservation of the region's industrial heritage and the provision of emergency medical support in rural areas are the latest 2 projects to receive a house builder's funding boost. H&R Ainscough Barge Restoration and the Douglas Cardiac Trust have each been awarded £1,000 from the Persimmon Homes Community Champions scheme. The national match funding programme seeks to support groups and charities working to improve the quality of life or environment for local people.  Diane Finch, sales director for Persimmon Homes Lancashire, said:- "Our Ainscough Mill development overlooks the canal in Burscough, offering unique views for people living there. Just like the mill itself, the historic waterway is a lasting reminder of the industrial heritage of the area and something to be treasured. We worked tirelessly to restore and renovate the mill and are pleased to support the group preserving the last 2, 11033 barges. The Douglas Cardiac Trust is a local charity providing medical support in the villages of Tarleton, Bank and Hesketh Bank. As well as helping to fund 1st Responder and 1st Aid provision, the group has placed more than 30 defibrillators in public buildings and supported individuals with complex medical needs. Such a service in a semi rural area is a lifeline for local people and very deserving of our help."

Community groups, charities and good causes across the county have benefited thanks to the donations from Persimmon Homes. Organisations can apply for funding by completing a simple online form. The scheme invites local groups and charities to bid for cash from a £750,000 national fund, with 2 donations of up to £1,000 being made locally every month. Persimmon Homes Lancashire operates new homes developments throughout Lancashire and Cumbria.
